The JPN Lab is a research initiative based at the University of Plymouth which aims to:
- Draw on disciplines and methodologies represented by the fusion of social sciences, language, literature and cultural studies, geography, history and business and management science.
- Embrace emerging technologies for knowledge creation and open access, including enhanced digital publishing to reach policy makers in reduced time frames and to enrich university teaching and learning practices (networks, mobile and wearable, collaborative, web 2.0).
- Explore narrative, film and literary texts and the discourses surrounding the formation of place knowledge, experience and value creation. This includes the written space and the practices used to share experiences and enjoyment of place.
